from here, this was the last time they saw america, and they made the ultimate sacrifice for us. as we transfer this treasure, this island, from the navy back to the city, i hope that all of us will remember the service and sacrifice of every sailor, every marine, living and dead. [applause] and the people who left from here and the people who serve today, risking everything, so that we can celebrate today. that legacy lives on in the young men and women who wear the cloth of this country and who are deployed around the world as we meet here today. when the famous or infamous bates 3 aligning closure process started in 1988, a final result of any individual base closure and transfer could not have hoped for a better ultimate outcome than what has been achieved in treasure island. the navy's charge is to dispose of property in a manner that promotes economic development. that has been done. the transfer of treasure island is a win for san francisco. it is a win for the state of california, a win for the united states navy, and a win for the american taxpayers who paid for this base and
feet and 600,000 square feet. that sounds big but that only puts us in competition with a city like san diego. you have hotels in las vegas that have 1 million square feet of exhibition space. even with both of these projects. -- even with both of these projects, we are still small. these things could not only help to continue the revitalization of neighborhoods -- and those of you who remember this neighborhood 30 years ago -- things have changed quite a bit. we believe this would bring increased vitality to the neighborhood, increased spending in the city that would help overall -- the overall economy. when we look at the political will, we look at financing options and opportunities to take next that's. the best opportunity is mosconi east in 2008. that would be a perfect time live from what we believe meets the demand that is growing at the moment. the last thing i want to talk about his proposition j, the proposition to increase the hotel tax. it increases it two points, 14%. it just went up 13% two years ago, so we would have a 25% increase in hotel taxes in just a few years. it i
changed blocking the former use. the reeducation of the model for that space merits the permit being granted. also you have consistent uses that have the permit for tables and chairs. the more people you have on the streets, the more the public is present. when you look at the big picture, whatever the history of the hearing, i think that we have they changed context and one that merits the opportunities and it is a very conscientious merchant that will do the right thing. >> i him in opposition. we are on the left side. by putting tables there, that will interfere. without the benches, i would see food, beer, all kinds of things. i'm afraid that i have lost a lot of customers because of the smoking, and allowed music. people are smoking marijuana and other things. i am opposed to that. we are not many here because we have five workers representing them and my customers and my salon has small children and families their. they have put strippers' there and they are selling beer. there is no permit applying. they cannot mix business with smoking and food. thank you very much. i am oppo
am advocating for a sensible solution that recognizes that bicyclist use the road differently. we ride to the side whenever possible to allow cars to share the road with us. in the same way, when we slowdown for a stop sign it slows the entire process down four people behind us if we were to be in the middle of the line. i guess what i am concluding is it is important for cyclists to use the road safely and courteously at all times. we should never rolled through a stop sign when it is not our turn. we should never run a red light. we should not be riding on the sidewalk. but the one size fits all enforce every law has the capacity to unfairly address behavior that is not dangerous, such as rolling through a stop sign. i really want to point that out. chairperson mar: thank you. >> good morning, supervisors mar, chu, and maxwell. i am the bicycle advisory commissioner for district 9. i am here to essentially echo what the bike coalition interim director has mentioned, which is the fact that the bike plan itself is a good plan. i know my colleagues and i are really looking forward
the conditional use process with the 403 vote. just got notice from the telegraph hill dwellers association that they are going to appeal it so it will be appealed to the board of supervisors and just wanted it part of the record so people are following that can stay tuned. thank you. vice chair joseph: does anyone else wish to have public comment? seeing none, i'll close the item and go to item 2 review and approve the minutes of may 25, june 22 and august 10. because of the shortage of members here, we will continue the june 22 and august 10 minutes so that leaves us with may 25. have a motion on those minutes? >> a point of order, since only four commissioners were present and one of them is no longer a member of the commission, three members can approve the minutes. >> that's what we're told. >> ok. so i'd like to move to approve the minutes. vice chair joseph: is there a second? >> second. vice chair joseph: thank you. want to call the roll. commissioner joseph? sorry. commissioner meko? >> aye. >> commissioner perez? >> aye. >> commissioner newlin? >> aye. >> the minutes from may 25 h
needs to be stored more fully -- explore more fully. but this is a very important issue for us because it means the economic survivability of our japantown merchants. they need to consider phasing the project so that the medical office building can be developed and the parking spaces used their initially and that we decrease the impact. another factor is that cpmc should force their contractors to obey the san francisco transit first policy. please have cpmc mitigate those factors. thank you. commissioner miguel: we are going to take a 10-minute break. >> [speaking spanish] >> i have eight years living in the tenderloin. i'm a mother of three children. my mother -- my children go to retting elementary. as you know, we walked a lot in the neighborhood, and we walked in the area where you are planning to build a hospital. our concern is that it will generate more traffic, which will be much more dangerous for families -- much more dangerous for pedestrians, particularly families. i feel like cars do not respect pedestrians or stop lights or velocity in the neighborhood. just yesterday, i
or materials up to $50,000. it is rare that we get anything close to that, but it would help. we generally use those monies to pay for any kind of animal welfare needs that we have. in these tight budget times, we have seen a lot more animals coming in to the shelter with a lot more needs, especially veterinary needs. or materials and supplies have been running really high. we generally take money from those donations to offset the medical care of the animals. that is the background on how it came up. i am happy to answer any other questions you have. chairperson mar: sure. hopefully this leads to more big donations to panel welfare. >> i would not mind. we can use it. chairperson mar: let us open this up to public comment. is there anyone from the public would like to speak? seeing none, public comment is closed. it is moved and seconded without objection. please call item two. >> item 2, hearing on the recently published 2009-2010 civil grand jury report entitled "sharing the roadway -- from confrontation to conversation." chairperson mar: this is an item based on a 2009-2010 civil grand jur
. i know the land use attorneys are looking at submitting what it actually means, and i will leave it up to them because they can speak in the language that needs to be spoken to, but i encourage you to take that seriously. i encourage you to take a radical approach. that would be, there are discussions about the blaze. why don't we take the approach and do a full draft eir around that. at the same time you do what cpmc wants, to the eir. that way if for some reason you decide there are too many variants engine cannot go forward or the board of supervisors says they are too wide, we have a backup plan, something the community wants and something that will work for cpmc. will it cost them money? sure, but they already make $250 million per year, said they're not hurting for money. they would continue to be a profitable organization even though they are nonprofit. let's look at doing a full eir on that approach, make sure -- the last thing any of us want to do is delay the hospital. we're not trying to stop hospitals altogether. we want our brothers and sisters in the building trade
they are appealing as permit that allows us to approve our existing windows. again, if we had left them alone, neither one of us would have been protected from malaise. and we would have continued to have little privacy with the glazing. we want to know what they're asking us to do if the permit is revoked. we wish to be able to retain the natural light that we do had rainy season is around the corner. we do not feel animosity towards our neighbors, and whatever decision is reached tonight will not affect us wanting to have a relationship with them. >> can you upon what you mean -- can you define what you mean obscure? >> you can't see. >> they wouldn't be able to see anything? >> of the previous ones were clear -- >> were you working with the contractor or doing it by yourself? >> i had hired help. >> did you have a licensed contractor? >> no. >> i was going asked about the obscure glaze. >> we don't know existed 110 years ago, but we think they had been there for a long time. >> they were would, not vinyl? >> we have other when does in the building that are -- >> mr. cornfield? >> i am with
-701-4485 for copies. >> good morning, everyone. thank you so much for joining us at el cafe. we want to thank lourdes for housing us this morning. this was a really wonderful opportunity for us to get the community more involved. as many of you know we've been working really hard on our truancy and wanting to get our kids in our schools, staying in our schools, and make sure they're doing exactly what they're supposed to be doing. this effort has been a true effort between the city, the school district, and so many of our partners in the community, and this launch today is really about involving our community, our larger community, in what it is that we're trying to do. and so we want to just thank all of our community partners who are here, urban services, maria sue from the department of children, youth, and families. the s.f. police department, who has been really instrumental in making sure that our truancy process goes well, and captain lazar is here from the police department. want to thank him for all of his efforts and supporting what we're doing. and i have from the school district superinte
? commissioner clyde: i'm wondering if you're in a special use district of any kind or redevelopment area of any kind? >> i don't believe we developed there anymore. >> because the thing that comes up for me commissioners, is -- is the underserved nature of the location. the fact that it doesn't have grocery stores convenient grocery stores, that it does not have convenient. i -- i mean -- >> can i make a correction to that. it does. saveway is right in the area. >> three blocks. >> three blocks away. >> because -- for me public transportation, i mean i can just imagine what it is for an elder person relying on public transportation to take them back and for the across town and something that is within walking distance. >> that will be different, though, once the legislation is enacted in terms of -- of access to -- to a -- you know a pharmaceutical because -- if this legislation is enacted then saferway will no longer be able to sell pharmaceuticals. it would be back to a --, a walgreen's or a -- or a independent drugstore. >> okay, thank you. >> what about -- what about some kind of financial
my son the same age as his daughter. why out of the 2 of us only one has bottom an adult. >> i'm never getting married. she sank back against the ground. i sat then next to her i could smell fabric softener. >> this is nothing hoeky about loving something with all your heart. that's not how anyone has loved me. that's why they leave me. i'm everyone's good luck charm but mine. >> she was right. there was nothing hoeky about a great love to span a lifetime. >> love struck couples staring into each other's eyes. waitress with tired legs waiting for the end of her shift receives a visit from johnitto. he turns, one last time to the faces above the steaming plates before he's out. into the neon lit street leaving behind a trail of rose petals, dark as sacrificial hearts. >> if we killed you now, if we took aim for your belly with our cross bow or laser sight and pulled a trigger or let a tipped arrow rip through the night air, there would not be a story to tell. so, while we lay and wait for you to appear, chewing the fat, lit up on beer. lit up on the last of the evening light
program. we have not had the report presented to us, with the recommendations in the report. we have not had the opportunity to engage the community and our own staff with those recommendations yet. that is one example of major pieces of information we do not yet possess and that we feel are critically important to be able to determine what the process is going to look like. i do not want to sound ambiguous, it is our goal to take that information, to engage the community, and then develop what that time when would look like. i think what is very germane is what superintendent garcia has shared, which is that it must be based on the instructional program rather than the drawing of boundaries. vice president mendoza: how does that look with the schools that have sig, when you want to have community input on the family's fed into those schools? >> those are all interrelated. i believe i used the word braiding. . i am going to use the special education recommendations. the recommendations we are anticipating from our special education audit are going to be extensive and far reaching in
the special use district was in effect, they decided that rather than honoring the law and the planning code of the city requiring that they provide housing at a rate of three-to-one on the corridor, profit matters most. instead of making sure that one of the few hospitals that serves the southeast sector of the city is sustainable with mixed services for neighborhoods with the highest concentration of youth and profitable, instead profit is the most important. instead of engaging in honest open discussion about alternative 3a, they reject it because profit is most importantly. bernal heights neighborhood center and the coalition of san francisco demands that equitable healthcare access be mandated where 100% of the developer's obligation of the existing code, particularly that in the van ness special use district be met and st. luke's be rebuilt to its current licensed 270 bed capacity at a minimum so it can be around for another 100 years to continue to serve san francisco's working class neighborhoods. keep in mind that cpmc made $150 million last year. it's time for them to get serious a
have said to me, how do we make it better with a sibling? what changed for us was the first thing that happened is, this is now my rule 1, take action. i flew out to the orchards, i panicked after 9/11. i would never get this better. what was i going to do? like everyone in new york and america, we were so traumatized with 9/11. i said to my husband, i am going to go out to the orchards. >> this is before you knew he was sick? >> i knew. he was still going full speed and no one would have known he was sick. he wasn't really sick, he just had his medical condition. i said i am going to go surprise him. i spent 2 days. >> simply because the world is coming to an end? >> i felt compelled. it was the moment i knew i had to turn the page. you just know. there is something that happens to you, i am going to turn the page. i was panicked. i was surprising him, he would have said no, i am too busy, i don't want you here. i spent a day running all over new york city trying not to freak out about the sirens buying flannel clothes, the right things for the orchard. this is ridiculous, i wear
advisory board. >> thanks. >> commissioner. >> i would like to thank all of the speakers who updated us on what is happening in the mission district. it is good to hear positive results that you are having from different components in the community working together. captain, i am wondering if you could give me or -- more information or help me understand the breakdown of the one-car, two-car, the six-car sector. i guess i could guess what that means. and the statistics being tied to the one-car, two-car, i am not sure -- >> the police district is broken up into six different sectors. >> there are two cars assigned to this sector and six to another sector? >> there are six different sectors. they are just name the one-car through the six cars. >> thanks. i appreciate that. >> i had a quick question. then we can move along. i did speak with a couple of residents. they're concerned was that they have new officers coming on board. they are not trained to deal with the community members. i want to know if there is a way to transition the officers of that they have strong relationships? >> pe
, they would come and film a show on us. so that was really a great pat on the back. so i think any neighborhood in this city has the ability to turn around and to go forward such as lush lounge has done and we also have a person here in the room that's been of great assistance to us, chris schulman. about three years ago when he was with the office of the mayor in economic development, he came in and began to bring all of the businesses together. he was like a foot soldier. when you run a business, you don't have time to meet the neighbors and get to know everybody so he was a great ambassador of bringing, i believe, our corridor together. with his help and bar owners coming together, we have on our own, i have a special foot patrol on friday and saturday nights, hired out of our pockets to make sure our streets are safe and clean and there's no trouble. finally, i think the commissioners on this board have a lot to do and in common with what i do as we listen to people talk and talk and talk. so whenever you'd like to move on to another job, bring me your resume, i think you'd wor

: that's the warning today from san francisco police to people who use smart phones or musical players without minding their surroundings. >> i usually keep my belongings in my purse. >> reporter: the warning comes after several robberies in which suspects use threats or physical threats to take items from their victims. in one case the suspect entered the back door of the nummi bus to demand the victim's wallet. police say a 15-year-old riding home from school aboard a j church train last night had his cell phone and mp3 player taken by an adult man. >> he is told to give up the device or he's going to be shot. >> reporter: police say five other late night cash and cell phone robberies may have been committed by the same two suspects. with this weekend street festivals and more people on the street, police are urging smart phones and i pod owners to be aware. >> look around, turning your head changes the whole dynamic instantly because they think you are looking at them. >> actually when i'm talking on the phone, i'm more concentrated on the conversation and not what's happening aroun

pedestrians can walk along the beautiful alleyways -- shared muses which deemphasized the comfortable use of automobiles. this shows you one of those shared street ways. this shows you a neighborhood park, which occurs on every block. these are part systems that bring people out of the community to enjoy their neighborhood. finally, what we think will be one of the really dramatic pieces of the island design, which is the city side our park. the east side neighborhood is built around a commons that is a long, linear park less stretches from the urban core out to the east side with those of you from berkeley will be able to gaze fondly at the new bay bridge. the third neighborhood is yerba buena island, where we will be building new, single-family homes that will nestle with in the concourse and the tree-lined of that existing natural vegetative island to have a very light impact, but to create a terrific new neighborhood. these neighborhoods, which will hold a total of 8000 homes, will be surrounded by 300 acres of public park. what is important is that we create a system in which they pr

because i feel very strongly about preserving public views, especially the use of historic monuments. the lane has its own history. the views from the lane are the landmarks of other trends -- of alcatraz. they are the reason many people from the world walk-through and buy this land. it is on your city walks map of san francisco. because i grew up in southern california, a am acutely aware of how necessary it is to be vigilant and how important to save things we tend to take for granted. i think these views should be protected. they are a legacy to the city. they are a legacy to people around the world and to future generations of san franciscans. i think anything you can do to support that would be very, very helpful. president peterson: is there any other public comment? seeing none, unless you have further questions, the matter is submitted. commissioner garcia: i have a question for mr. sanchez and a question for mr. cornfield -- kornfield. private these are not protected. public views are. i am sure that was taken into consideration when the permit was reviewed by planning. >> u

that are ongoing. part inspections, using data on the city's street and sidewalks and in this and reporting. we have had a proposition a analysis. by next july, the board will be approving a five-year financial plan. our office is doing work on that to do projections. many of which will be city-wide. a level of detail that is somewhere between the mayor's budget report and the joint report. large departments will have specific schedules to look at during a period of time to look at the service cost delivery and how we expect it to change, given demographics, federal funding, other things that we will know in the five-year horizon. supervisor maxwell: will then document be available to the public, will it be on line? >> we will probably put drafts of it on line as we are developing. we are also working on a communication stakeholder part of it. we do not anticipate a lot of town hall meetings or anything like that. but we will do some interviews, outreach, and have a road show that lets anyone of us on the city team working on it discuss it with labor organizations, community organizations, anyb
of the state. and when you compare us to any dense urban county, san francisco has the lowest unemployment rate. we have more public development than any other city in california. billions are being invested in a regional water system. this work is underway, with 40,000 jobs attached to this. this is not five years from now. these construction projects are happening right now. it was said that there is work that is being done -- that the second most unsafe thoroughfare in the united states of america. think about that. this was constructed with the same design of the bridge. and this is the structural rating through this. this project was dead on arrival. we spoke optimistically about the sock. and now, this is under construction -- about this. and now, this is under construction. we have the federal dollars and the state dollars. we have those who believe everything that they read, and they thought that the stimulus program actually delivered the final funding for this. and the direct appropriations because of the leadership of nancy pelosi. and the stimulus money would take us right over the
morning, everyone. they keep for having us here today. that was a great video. i think it rivals our videos now. after 40 years of planning, debating, talking about it, we are finally constructing the transbay transit center. it is remarkable for many of us who have been working on this for so long. as the mayor indicated, we had a wonderful groundbreaking on august 11. we had the u.s. secretary of transportation ray lahood, speaker of the house nancy pelosi, senator boxer, mayor newsom, who has been supporting this project since he was a supervisor, and the california high speed rail authority, all on hand to celebrate the groundbreaking of the first high-speed rail station in the united states. the first modern bus station built in this country in the past 40 years. on august 6 in the evening, we shut down the existing transbay terminal. the next day on august 7, we started operations at the temporary facility at main and beale. we are currently in demolition. so far, we have demolished the east ramp on howard we are working now on the west ramp. then we will have the demolition of
